As far as I know you won't be able to get rid of the flicker from the memo without lowering the speed at which each letter comes out.  The reason being that TMemo redraws it's entire text whenever it changes regardless of how much you actually change.  Yes I know how to add a single character to a line without rewriting the line but it won't make any difference.

'graphics - ask ak47.' <<
LandRocker you can appoint anyone you like into this project as you are lead programmer.
If you want bill gates to help go ask him :)
Yeah mate you can help , though i want to do 'some' graphics too! ;).
It looks good guys , only thing is i cant see the [x] in the corner to close it (its too latge for my screen!! ).
Anyone know why that might be?,

You sure the file is there?
i changed my screen resolution and it looks good now :).
can you add an auto screen resolution changer to the game? and when the user quits it goes back to there origional.

Good idea about adding a cross in the corner :) [x] .
Maybe i could do some better graphics for it too.

It looks really really promising :) .

But that link just dosent work for the latest ver :(.

better not auto-change screen res to 1064x768 cause people with old monitors wouldn't be happy when you destroy them

Don't worry, it doesn't, I think i'm gonna find or write a procedure to change the size of all the components depending on the res, but for now it's 1024x768 only

Sorry , we are not joining any other 'teams' , we have independant programmers and we do not need any other help than what people can offer.

This game was started by the users of this forum and is part of the users of this forum.

I have decided we are not joining anyone else but we will accept help from people willing to help.

Landrocker why cant i download the latest ver from that url? :( *bohoo*.

if you don't find one, then probably the best you can do is scale down all the components into 800x600 and then auto-change screen res to that

I just uploaded the new ver (i hope ;) ),
I am downloading a component to auto resize the form depending on res, but it is shareware so we prob can't use it. There are a few others I will try if this one fails.

ok, my scanner's going to be fixed soon, so you will all be able to see some wonderful designs of mine (i am not modest).

Unfortunately, these might involve having to re-do the whole GUI, but I am just about to try out this copy of the project I downloaded, so we shall see.
